A Little Slam Poetry

A Little Slam Poetry

A Poem by 50centdolly

Random urge to write out a little frustration towards school.


This is absurd

In other words

I’d enjoy watching it burn

Everything we learn

Isn’t something we yearn

Teachers’ eyes all stern with fake concern

Their mouths vomit facts

Facts lacking interest

Students end up on Pinterest

Facts expected to be remembered

For a contest

To see who remembers best

See who rises above the rest of the class

And does not trespass

On shortcut’s territory


It will be called cheating

It will gnaw on you, eating

Away your fleeting status

I would enjoy watching it burn

School in flames

The place where social chains

Start and grow, enabling pain

I hope the rain doesn’t drain the flame

That covers the place of hate where we wait

And get irate at the too-full plate

They expect us to finish at a too fast rate.

Haha, I love writing it. I didn't even edit this. I just "slammed" it on paper and posted it. xD
I completely get this, I love learning but school can do more damage than good sometimes. Schools really compare kids too much and I think it can be detrimental.
